Just in case you guys started to think I had stopped making stuff. There was a small interior remodel project I was working on, but I managed to squeeze in a few.

First up, a little hunter. Flat ground O-1 3.5" blade with red bronze and nickel-silver hardware, Stabilized box elder burl handle.

Next up is a O-1 Bowie. Flat ground 7-5/16" long by 1.5" wide at the choil. 410 Stainless guard and filed frame. Spacers are shibuichi with a fine silver hammered spacer and fine silver domed pins. Mammoth ivory scales.

And last is the 1 inch cubic challenge blade from a piece of scrap Damascus. 410 Stainless fittings and octagon handle of Macassar ebony.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

As always, very sweet. I especially love the 1 cubic inch challenge. What was the starting material for the silver spacer in the Bowie? Do you cast that too, or do you have a source of pre-made silver flat stock?

I purchased 18Ga wire for the pins and a small sheet (1'x6") from Rio Grande.

Sorry. 16 gauge wire, 18 gauge sheet from Otto Frei.
